A Deported Nationality The Ahıska Turks

“… after the Fergana events, we were evacuated to Russia, but we could not live there. After making the necessary arrangements we decided to migrate to Turkey by car. One night we stayed in my daughter’s house near Georgia, then we continued on our way to Turkey. My grandson asked me: ‘where are we going to sleep tonight grandpa?’ I did not know what to say. Tell me, what kind of a grandfather am I? I am not even capable of answering the question of my grandson because I did not know the answer myself. My father was deported, I was deported, my son is deported, and now my grandson. Isn’t that too much?”

A 3800 yr paleoseismic record (Lake Hazar sediments, eastern Turkey): Implications for the East Anatolian Fault seismic cycle
Hubert-Ferrari, Aurelia; Lamair, Laura; Hage, Sophie; Schmidt, Sabine; Cagatay, M. Namik; Avşar, Ulaş (Elsevier BV, 2020-05-15)
The East Anatolian Fault (EAF) in Turkey is a major active left-lateral strike-slip fault that was seismically active during the 19th century but mostly quiet during the 20th century. Geodetic data suggests that the fault is creeping along its central part. Here we focus on its seismic history as recorded in the sediments of Lake Hazar in the central part of the EAF. Sediment cores were studied using X-ray imagery, magnetic susceptibility, grain-size, loss-on-ignition and X-ray fluorescence measurements. Re...

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia endured turbulent years of political and economic transformation.
